Trio Enlist In Marshall’s “Centurion”

Michael Fassbender (“Hunger,” “Eden Lake”), Dominic West (“Punisher: War Zone,” “300”) and Olga Kurylenko (“Quantum of Solace,” “Hitman”) have signed to star in the sword and sandals thriller “Centurion” for Celador Films and Pathe Distribution says The Hollywood Reporter.

Set during the Roman invasion of Britain in AD 117 it tells the story of Quintus Dias, sole survivor of a Pictish raid on a Roman frontier fort, who marches north with General Virilus’ legendary Ninth Legion, under orders to wipe the Picts from the face of the earth and destroy their leader Gorlacon.

“The Descent” and “Doomsday” helmer Neil Marshall directs the film while Christian Colson (“Slumdog Millionaire”) will produce.
